Summer Camp Director
Meet Hannah Bawn!
Hi, I am Hannah Bawn and I am so excited to announce that I am the Summer Camp Director this year.
I have held almost every position at camp. I have been a camper and volunteered as part of the CIT program. I have been the Counsellor of Cabin 7, the Outdoor Living Skills Instructor and the Program Director. In 2018 and 2019, I held the position of the Assistant Director with the privilege of running the CIT program. I have been part of the Sherbrooke Lake community for 13 years.
My passion for working with children goes beyond Sherbrooke. I completed my Bachelors of Early Childhood Education in 2019 from Ryerson University making me a Registered ECE. I recently graduated from Acadia University with my Bachelors of Education with the goal of becoming a teacher in the Annapolis Valley.
My favourite game at camp is Gaga Ball. My favourite place is Chapel Island because I find it provides such a safe space for exploring, reflection and learning about others. My favourite meal is Out Trip Hash which is hot dogs, corn, potatoes and lots of ketchup! Sherbrooke Lake Camp has allowed me to create lifelong friends and even a special relationship. I feel blessed to be here this summer.
I know that COVID has created a tough time for most, but I hope that the idea and possibility of camp will create that spark again! I am so excited to see old and new faces!
See you all soon,
Meet Maddie Stewart!
Hello! I’m Maddie and I will be the Assistant Director at camp this summer!
I am thrilled to be back at camp in a new position this year! I have been coming to camp since 2011 when I started as an intermediate camper. Over the years I have worked in several positions at camp, I spent two summers as a CIT, two as a Counsellor and two more as a Program Director (the Craft Master!). Camp holds a special place in my heart and I care deeply about ensuring that everyone who passes through our gates has a wonderful experience at Sherbrooke Lake.
I recently graduated from Carleton University with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and History. In the Fall of 2021 I will be starting at Acadia University in their Bachelors of Education program, after which I plan to become a high school teacher!
Some of my favourite parts of camp include swimming in our beautiful lake, making crafts and bracelets in the rec. center, singing songs around the campfire and puddle jumping when it rains! The food is another one of my favourite things about camp, I love mac and cheese, our world famous turkey dinner and enjoying a nice cool freezie during beach day!
Some of these activities may look a little different this summer but I believe every day at camp is a gift! I look forward to running the Counsellor in Training program this summer and helping campers and staff adapt to camp in the time of COVID. Despite the many challenges presented by running camp during a pandemic, I know this summer will be one filled with lots of laughing, singing, playing and camp magic!
See you at Camp!
